Product description


Born Liars is in quite a different league [than other pop psychology books]. It’s erudite yet wears its learning lightly and is full of terrific stories. It will also make you see yourself, and the world around you, in a new light. (John Preston Daily Mail 2011-05-24)

Ian Leslie uncovers the truth of the matter: Lying of all kinds is woven into our makeup . . . by tying lying into culture, Leslie gets near the core of what it means to be human. (Vanessa Milne Chatelaine 2011-06-01)

. . . fascinating . . . of interest to everyone . . . (John Rentoul Independent 2011-05-22)

. . . persuasive and wide-ranging . . . [Ian] Leslie brings intelligence and a wealth of thought-provoking research to his topic. (Marni Jackson Globe and Mail 2011-07-08)

. . . stuffed full of interesting studies and good writing . . . a fun read . . . (David Dobbs Wired 2011-07-12)

[Born Liars does] a grand job of challenging misguided human conceit about our honesty and its benefits ... convincing ... (Susan Koswan Kitchener Waterloo Record 2011-10-07)
